>The railroad index below shows our group location of a particular 1930-1940 passenger railroad listing. It also shows, in a general way, the 2008 ownership of surviving lines of the railroad. In many cases portions of these old roads have been abandoned, sold to short lines, shared in ownership or utilized by urban transit services. Since the web site is continually growing and including new railroads from time to time, not all railroads will be linked back to a web page devoted to that railroad. They will appear as the work continues. If you find a blue or red link in the index you may jump directly to that railroad if you wish. Happy hunting!
